Biodiversity and food waste at IPBES

Many current food systems have an unsustainable and disproportionate impact on biodiversity and nature's services to people. Furthermore, a substantial part of food produced is later lost.

For this reason, IPBES's ongoing Nexus assessment, a thematic assessment of the interlinkages among biodiversity, water, food and health, will consider how to reduce food loss and waste according to its scoping report. It is scheduled for publication by the end of 2024.

You might also be interested in the free 9-hour online course 'From Waste to Value: How to Tackle Food Waste' offered by EIT Food and the University of Reading. It is accredited by the CPD Certification Service (UK), and successful participants receive a free certificate. The course is included in ONet's catalogues of e-learning opportunities on biodiversity.

The agrifood systems that encompass the journey of food from farm to table and beyond touch every aspect of our lives and reach every corner of the planet. Yet instead of harnessing their immense potential for positive impact, we are letting agrifood systems wreak havoc on our climate and environment.

In 2023 the World Food Forum (WFF) - a youth-led movement and network to transform our agrifood systems - is committed to the theme: “Agrifood systems transformation accelerates climate action.”
